This Tiny Dog Chased A Google Maps Camera And Ended Up In Every Shot

You have to admire his tenacity Google Maps has improved by leaps and bounds over the years. It’s gone from a simple navigational tool to a cool and ultimately useless way to pass the time while you’re bored at work, thanks to the function called “Street View.” This function does exactly what its name implies: you drag and drop a little yellow dude onto a space on the map, and it zooms you in and allows you to look around as if you were standing on the street. It’s a neat way to see differ...

Encouragement Without Education Backfires On Recycling Efforts

Longtime Slashdot reader Alok writes: High contamination in recycled garbage, such as plastic bags mixed in with the recyclable plastic waste, are causing major problems for sustainability efforts in U.S. This has been exposed as a big problem recently, due to recent stricter China import rules on importing waste materials that led to changes in the sourcing pipelines. Cities such as Philadelphia have ended up processing nearly half of the recycling garbage using waste-to-energy incinerators ins...

Leica’s Q2 is a beautiful camera that I want and will never have

Leica is a brand I respect and appreciate but don’t support. Or rather, can’t, because I’m not fabulously rich. But if I did have $5,000 to spend on a fixed-lens camera, I’d probably get the new Q2, a significant improvement over 2015’s Q — which tempted me back then. The Q2 keeps much of what made the Q great: a full-frame sensor, a fabulous 28mm F/1.7 Summilux lens, and straightforward operation focused on getting the shot. But it also makes some major changes that make the Q2 a far more co...

Infused Apple Cider Vinegar

Shots of vinegar? For wellness buffs, they're a thing. Apple grower Joanne Krueger's farm-to-bottle ferments are good for more than sipping, though. Crafted from fruits grown on her family's orchard in Sonoma County, Joanne's vinegars are packed with flavor, adding complexity to salad dressings, sauteed greens, and quick pickle brines. Choose blood orange and Meyer lemon for a hint of citrus, or wildfire spice for welcome heat. You can't really go wrong. Handmade in California.

Google's Project Zero Team Releases Details On High-Severity macOS Bug 'BuggyCow'

Google's bug-hunting researchers known as Project Zero have revealed a fresh zero-day vulnerability in macOS called "BuggyCow."
